Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Review

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a sturdy instruction manual on how to handle melodrama in the classiest possible fashion.

The Hindu

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is too tangled to transport you. But I recommend that you see it. Because only Yash Chopra could make heartache so attractive and ennobling that his characters wear it like a badge of honor

Hindustan Times

Despite its many script problems, it's a consistently watchable film that oozes with feeling and real emotion. A fitting swan song

Nothing more than lovely fluff that could have been shorter, snappier

Watch this one for Shah Rukh, who can still do the dimpled boy wonder and the older, mature lover with a wry smile and wounded wink and sexy nudge

Indian Express

An overstretched, archaic romance. Shah Rukh Khan is its minor saving grace

A Yash Chopra drama that treads very familiar territory slickly - and a fair bit too slowly - but does so with an old-world sincerity that somehow makes most of it bearable


Broad strokes define Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The details are amiss and it doesn’t quite come together

Mumbai Mirror

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a sublime story about love and life. They don't make them like that anymore

Times of India

At a gracious 3 hours runtime, JTHJ feels like an epic love story. And it is just that. It is the best romantic film made in this generation.


This one is for the romantics who can sit through Bollywood’s version of eternal love.

Every frame is picture perfect, the emotions are well nuanced. But there is one inherent flaw - the story by Aditya Chopra is hackneyed

Times of India

Jab Tak Hai Jaan may not be a flawless film but it still makes for a decent love story


Despite the lovey-dovey nothingness that drives the plot, Jab Tak Hai Jaan has more substance than most romantic films that come out of Bollywood

Attention-grabbing from inception till conclusion. The drama only soars higher and the complex love story gets more and more gripping as the conflict between the characters come to the fore
